I love it.  It says classy playboy bunny, if that's possible.
that description!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Asymmetric Rabbit Ear Bow Fascinator on: July 21, 2014 08:47:57 PM

This is the 3rd hat I've made so far. It finally feels like I've figured out the process so this was much easier and lots of fun to make.

cardboard, duct tape, repurposed velvet, batting, and birdcage veiling

In a previous post I showed how the base is made

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ruby and Black Lace Fascinator on: July 14, 2014 03:15:16 AM

This is the second fascinator I've made so far. Made from cardboard, batting, satin, and lace.

The rhinestones affixed to the bow were arranged and glued down onto clear plastic. All of the fabrics and trim used were leftover scraps from previous projects.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fishnet Hosiery Style Fascinator on: May 12, 2014 07:20:31 AM
I don't really know where to put this... Undecided

This thing is made of drag leftovers, ripped hosiery, and E-6000.

I made the hat form from 2 pieces of cardboard duct-taped together, then over that I added a layer of batting, 2 layers of pantyhose, and a layer of fishnet tights. The rest was just decorating and gluing on all the details like lace trim, the rose, and ostrich feathers.

It fastens to one's head with a salon clip glued under the hat.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / AB Rhinetone and Spike Earrings on: May 12, 2014 06:53:52 AM

I had a really cheap costume necklace that broke on me, so I salvaged a few bits of it to make a set of earrings.

The box chain, stones, and spikes are all glued to pieces of clear plastic packaging (the really hard to open and often sharp-edged kind that everyone hates dealing with) using E-6000.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Frayed Denim Shorts on: May 25, 2013 09:26:38 PM

These started out a pair of vintage high-waisted Gitano jeans. I went to town on them with a pair of scissors, then dipped them in bleach. When they came out of the dryer the edges were perfectly frayed.

So easy. These took like an hour to make.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hip Bone Bewdy Shorts on: April 28, 2013 03:33:26 AM

These started out as a basic pair of black jeans. I cut them super short and used white fabric paint to paint the hip bones onto the denim. After they were painted I chewed them up a bit more with a pair of scissors and then threw them in the wash to set the paint and fray the raw edges of the denim.

Though it's difficult to tell, the front of the shorts are quite a bit shorter than the back which is why the design on the front is kind of squished.

No pattern?? Really? I think it's great. Good job!

Thank you  Smiley

Yep, with something like this you can get away with not making a pattern because the shapes are simple. After working on a few projects you have an idea of what the pieces should look like before you sew them together. If I had wanted to add darts or a certain sleeve shape then I probably would've made a paper pattern first.

This little jacket is made from fabric repurposed from the lining of a very old dress I found in a thrift shop. The tulle trim was found in a craft store and just happened to match the vintage fabric perfectly.

Didn't use a pattern. I just took a few measurements, sketched out how the pieces should look on paper, then drew my pattern directly on the fabric with chalk and cut it out.

These turned out quite beautiful. I love the galaxy thing that's happening right now but it's not often it's done well. Your necklaces instantly read as galaxy.
